I am draw to art that reveals something that would otherwise go undetected. In this case technology enables us to see the drawings made by the path of a ballet dancer’s foot. It’s an experiment that worked, something that isn’t necessarily useful in terms of design, but nonetheless reveals a hidden beauty in an already beautiful dance form. Moments of technological intervention like this design are something that I try to seek out in my own work.
